Fitness Degrees

Is it worth getting a degree in fitness and diet to be a personal trainer or gym owner? Is there enough stuff online to know everything about diet and muscle and strength building? Do personal trainer and gym owner make good money?

So, I'm 280 lbs, and I'm SUPER self-conscious. I've been working out 5 days a week for the past few months, but I struggle with my diet. Part of me is considering having some kind of "work" done, like liposuction. Or, I've also heard of those "bands" or whatever they put on your stomach, to cut...

Each Sunday I go through and clean the gym. First Sunday of each month is a thorough clean, moving racks and vacuuming under them and so on.
